- VI Peel - The VI Peel has superior results for anti-aging. It reverses the effects of sun damage such as brown spots, fine lines and pore size. It improves tone, texture and acne conditions and is great in stimulating the production of collagen for a firmer skin tone. It can be done three to four times a year, it is safe for all skin types and is affordable. You can enjoy younger looking skin in one week with approximately three days of down time.
- APEELE - A next-generation revitalizing chemical peel designed to provide controlled exfoliation of damaged skin with significant visible results after just one treatment. This powerful yet non-invasive approach to chemical resurfacing uses a synergistic combination of alpha hydroxy acids (mandelic acid, lactic acid), beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid), other exfoliating acids (trichloroacetic acid, phenol, retinoic acid) in combination with hydroquinone and built-in topical anesthetics to achieve a superficial to medium-depth peel.
